Hickory’s Smokehouse is an American BBQ restaurant, inspired by the cuisine and hospitality of the Southern States of the USA. There are several branches across the West Midlands, North West of England and North Wales, with the first store opening their doors in Chester in 2010. Last week I was kindly invited to Hickory’s Smokehouse in Burton Green, to celebrate the restaurant re-opening its doors following the COVID-19 lockdown. I had never set foot in the restaurant before but I had heard good things from many friends who have been and so I had high expectations.
Upon arrival at the restaurant, we received a very warm welcome from the staff and were shown through to our table. To protect guests from the risks which continue to be posed by COVID-19, Hickory’s are currently using disposable menus designed to look like mini newspapers, which I absolutely loved!
